Zena by Falkner tiger collage print maxi-dress, 1970s

This dress is labelled Zena by Falkner. It is made of a synthetic satin finish knit with photographic collage print of antique Japanese imagery in tones of gold, orange and brown, with touches of pink, a textile which was ppular in the 1970s. The full length and classic shaping lets the vibrant print shine, and the gathered shoulders and softly draped neckline means the construction cuts into the print as little as possible while still creating shaping that drapes and flatters.
